Thank you from ‘The Fox’

The-Fox-111062561_869068546490371_6642532133286044656_n

“Thank you to everyone who has supported The Fox and your kind feedback in our first week of opening.

As we enter our second week we would like to clarify our position as to the welcoming of children at the pub as there would appear to be some misunderstanding.

The Fox is a community pub which strives to welcome all, including of course well behaved children accompanied and supervised by an adult. We would however respectively request that no children are in the bar and lounge area after 8pm as you will appreciate this is an adult environment after this time.

Again a massive thank you from the whole team to all who have made our first week so enjoyable”

Fox & Hounds over Xmas and New Year

Carols round the treePlease join us at the Fox and Hounds for carols around the tree on Friday at 7.30 followed by the Christmas draw.

Christmas Day, we are open lunchtime only (but not serving food.?!?).

Most other times are normal except New Years Eve, when we’ll be opening at five in the evening instead of six and going through until 2014 (the year that is!)

The weekly quiz will be running as of New Years Day ( due to popular demand!)

Best wishes to all our customers for the festive period and for 2014.
